Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Need advise on books to study or your advise to find value where we know tovalue and best way to sale this beautiful, she has owned this for 50 yrs approx.

I finally got all of the pictures this morning.

This is a carved French walnut dining room set with leather seats and brass finials on the chairs

and barley twist and heavy detailed carvings on all pieces including the XVI inscription, an homage to Louis XVI, the last king of France in the line of Bourbon monarchs who ruled from 1774 to 1792. This is a revival set and not of the 1700's period. It was made in the late 1800's in the French Renaissance/French Country Hunt style style.

The set is valued at $5,000-$7500 for the complete set. This style of furniture is not currently in high demand even though it is exquisite so it will take a while to find the right buyer.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are www.loveseat.com (in CA),
Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), http://www.revueconsignment.com/ (in Ohio),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.
